Yang Kai had exterminated these Wind Spirits and obtained the World Force contained within their bodies, so his harvest was naturally great.
Looking at the huge whirlwind quietly, Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a little excited. He didn’t know how many Wind Spirits had been born in this whirlwind, but it was definitely not just the ones he had encountered before. If he were to charge in and draw more Wind Spirits into his body, wouldn’t it save him a lot of time to cultivate?
This way, he would be able to advance to the Seventh Order faster!
Although the gap between Seventh Order and Sixth Order was only one grade, it was like the difference between heaven and earth. One was already a High Rank while the other was still a Mid Rank.
Others might fear the ferocity of the astral winds, but Yang Kai was able to resist them. With his previous experience, dealing with these wind spirits was much easier.
However, this thought only lingered in his mind for a moment before he gave up.
It was just that his strength had risen too quickly. Previously, he had been forced to advance to the Fifth Order, but after consuming the World Fruit a month later, he advance to the Sixth Order, if he were to quickly advance to the Seventh Order, it was highly likely that the Small Universe would become unstable.
After all, the Open Heaven Stage was a process of slowly accumulating and managing the Small Universe in one’s body. Sometimes, progressing too quickly was not necessarily a good thing.
When the time was right, it wouldn’t be too late to come here and guide these Wind Spirits into his body to reach Seventh Order! Thinking of this, Yang Kai felt relieved.
“Where is this place?” Yang Kai asked.
The Proprietress said, “Shattered Heaven, we don’t know exactly where it is.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly and sighed in his heart. As expected of Shattered Heaven, he had long since heard that this place was filled with dangers. Previously, he had seen a Spiritual Artifact that released a fierce aura, but now he had actually seen this Divine Ability Secret Technique that had lasted for countless years. No one knew how dangerous this place was, and if he wasn’t careful, his soul would be destroyed.
Taking out the Universe Chart he had bought in Shattered Star City, Yang Kai was unable to determine his current location.
Helpless, he could only say, “I’m afraid we’ve lost our way and can only take things one step at a time.”
No one had any objections. No matter where they were, it was better than staying in Shadowless Cave Heaven. None of them had expected to be able to leave Shadowless Cave Heaven in their lifetime.
Yang Kai then took out his Wishful Bag and released the hundred or so people who had previously been stored inside it. The ten Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters gathered together for a brief discussion before flying off in a certain direction.
Along the way, they had experienced many dangers, many of which had erupted without warning. Although the ten Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters had always been cautious, they had still encountered many dangers.
There were more than two hundred Open Heaven Stage masters who had followed Yang Kai out of Shadowless Cave Heaven, and nearly twenty of them had been killed by the Wind Spirit. After half a year, there were only a hundred and forty of them left, and with the exception of a few Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters, most of them had suffered varying degrees of injuries.
From this, one could see how dangerous Shattered Heaven was.
For the past half a year, everyone had not been moving in a certain direction, but had been constantly changing directions.
Unfortunately, after half a year, they had not even met a single person, making it impossible for them to determine where they were!
After half a year, Yang Kai, who was leading the group, suddenly looked in a certain direction. A moment later, his expression brightened and he called out, “There’s movement over there!”
Saying so, he led the way.
Everyone behind him quickly followed.
A moment later, a burst of light appeared in front of his eyes and a faint energy fluctuation spread out. It was obvious that someone was using the power of a Secret Technique.
When he got closer, Yang Kai discovered that two Open Heaven Stage cultivators were fighting a life and death battle. For some unknown reason, the battle was quite intense.
Both of them were men, and both of them had the cultivation of a Fifth Order Open Heaven Stage master, so their strength wasn’t low. It was unknown how long they had been fighting, but at this moment, both of their auras were somewhat weak and their bodies were covered in wounds of various sizes, causing blood to flow.
Just as they were fighting, they suddenly felt something and turned to look towards Yang Kai and the others. In the next moment, their expressions changed and they both retreated.
A moment later, Yang Kai and the others arrived not far from them.
Seeing the huge lineup behind Yang Kai, the two of them wore solemn expressions as they glanced at each other and simultaneously moved closer to each other.
No matter what cultivation these people had, just their numbers alone were not something they could contend with. Although they had fought to the death, they had known each other for a long time, so compared to these strangers who had suddenly appeared, they were more trustworthy.
Sensing the vigilance and hostility of these two, Yang Kai smiled and cupped his fists, “Friends, there is no need to panic. We are just passing by, we have no malicious intent.”
The man on the left glanced at Yang Kai, obviously not trusting him, and frowned, “What advice do you have?”
Yang Kai said, “We were trapped in some kind of desperate situation before, and it took us many years to escape, but now we’ve lost our way and don’t know how to get to Shattered Star City. If it’s convenient for you two friends, can you point us in the right direction?”
The two of them were stunned, thinking that this was all there was to it? When this group of people rushed over, they thought something had happened, but it turned out they were just asking for directions.
The man who had spoken earlier pointed in a certain direction and said, “If you want to go to Shattered Star City, go in this direction, it will take half a month!”
Yang Kai turned his head and nodded lightly, “Many thanks, thank you for your hospitality!”
Finished speaking, he flashed in the direction the man had pointed, and the group of people behind him followed, disappearing in the blink of an eye.
The remaining two Open Heaven Stage cultivators who had been fighting desperately looked at each other, somewhat at a loss.
However, after seeing this scene, the killing intent of these two had greatly diminished. Moreover, their strengths were on par with each other, so if they continued to fight, both sides would suffer heavy losses.
Now that they had been interrupted, they no longer had any intention to fight, each of them throwing out a few fierce words before transforming into streaks of light and flying off in different directions.
Yang Kai and the others followed this direction and as expected, the further they went, the more cultivators they encountered. Obviously, they had all come from the Shattered Star City.
However, no matter who it was, when they saw such a large number of Open Heaven Stage masters, all of them quickly retreated. In Shattered Heaven, there were many cases of people killing and robbing others, but if they were killed here, even the murderer couldn’t be traced.
Half a month later, Shattered Star City appeared in front of them.
In the group behind them, a burst of cheers immediately rang out. The three Shi Brothers shouted especially loudly. Many Open Heaven Stage cultivators looked towards the Star City, their eyes turning red as tears welled up in their eyes, as if they had just been reborn.
They had unintentionally fallen into Shadowless Cave Heaven and thought that they would never be able to leave, but who would have thought that they would have another chance to return to the 3000 Worlds.
Along the way, many of their companions had died. The feeling of being able to return alive was truly wonderful.
Soon, a group of people rushed into the Star City. Looking at the cultivators entering and exiting, the messy buildings, and even the small stalls along the road, everyone couldn’t help feeling a sense of familiarity. These scenes couldn’t be seen in Shadowless Cave Heaven.
Even Mao Zhe and the others couldn’t help feeling excited.
After finding an inn, everyone checked in, took a bath, and changed their clothes before leaving the place.
Hua Yong also set up a banquet to invite all his companions from Shadowless Cave Heaven, filling the inn’s main hall with people.
More than a hundred and forty people were divided into a dozen or so tables. Yang Kai and the other Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage masters sat together, while the remaining people called out to their friends and sat down, drinking and chatting.
During the banquet, many cultivators came alone or in groups of three or five to offer Yang Kai a toast, thanking him for bringing everyone away from Shadowless Cave Heaven and allowing them to return to the 3000 Worlds.
Yang Kai didn’t refuse any of them and was extremely forthright, quickly becoming drunk.
After three rounds of drinking, Hua Yong suddenly asked, “What are your plans from now on?”
Shi Shan was currently holding onto a leg of some unknown creature, the mouth dripping with oil. Hearing this, he took a sip of wine and asked, “What plans?”
Hua Yong smiled bitterly, “Since we’ve already left Shadowless Cave Heaven, we should be able to settle down in the future. We can’t just wander about outside, right?”
These words caused the three Shi Brothers to become somewhat dumbfounded. After staring at each other for a while, Shi Shan scratched his head and asked, “Yes, what plans do we have in the future?”
Shi Qiu muttered, “You’re the big brother, I’ll listen to you.”
Shi Yue nodded vigorously.
Shi Shan blinked and suddenly grinned at Hua Yong, “What about you? What are your plans?”
Hua Yong smiled and said, “My wife and I have already joined the Void Land. We are indebted to Sect Master for allowing us to become Elders!” Glancing at Mao Zhe, he continued, “Brother Mao and the others should be the same.”
“You all joined the Void Land?” Shi Shan stared at Mao Zhe in shock.
Mao Zhe remained silent, his face filled with displeasure.
Considering his Sixth Order Open Heaven Stage cultivation, if it weren’t for the Loyalty List, how could he have joined the Void Land? Even if he had, he should have been an Elder like Hua Yong. But now, they were nothing more than Yang Kai’s followers, their lives and deaths under his control.
Hua Yong took the opportunity to say, “We are all indebted to Sect Master for saving our lives. If it weren’t for Sect Master’s protection, how could we have had the chance to leave Shadowless Cave Heaven? Now that we’ve safely escaped, we should naturally return the favor. Brother Shi, we’ve occupied our own mountain in Shadowless Cave Heaven, but since we’ve come out, why don’t we all join Void Land? With our tens of thousands of years of friendship, we should be able to take care of each other in the future. What do you think?”
These words caused the three brothers to fall silent.
After a while, Shi Qiu whispered, “Big Brother, how about we join the Void Land?”
Shi Shan frowned, “If I join someone else’s force, won’t I be under someone else’s jurisdiction in the future? What if he doesn’t allow me to drink and eat meat? How can I be as happy as a boss?”
Shi Yue nodded repeatedly, “Big Brother is right.”
Shi Shan said, “The three of us brothers will join forces and go out to explore the world. How can our future achievements be bad? It’s better than being bullied by others. At that time, we’ll make a name for ourselves and obtain whatever we want.”
